Within the past week, I have joined a Wonder Woman group- Share the Wonder.  And I was like okay, let’s see if this one is any different than the last Wonder Woman groups I’ve been in. It has Christie Marson, niece of William Marston-creator of Wonder Woman in the group. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by some of the interactions, and Squeee’d out loud at a compliment, Ms. Marston gave me in the group. I’m still kinda walking on air from that compliment! 😀

So…imagine my surprise this morning when a person was obnoxiously obnoxious (so bad I had to say it twice). I posted a pic of Wonder Woman and Superman- black and white artwork for people to print out and color if they want.

Now then, I know that the whole WW and Superman pairing is not everyone’s cup of tea. But honestly, you said your opinion, so drop it. Constantly posting and whining about…. not appropriate behavior. “Is this what Diana has taught you?”   The idea of the group is to share what Princess Diana aka Wonder Woman has shown you, taught you, what does Wonder Woman stand for in your opinion. So honestly this person is annoying… but I’m not dropping out of this group, one person does not speak for the rest. 🙂

The other issue I have had with some in the group is my own issue. “WOW! She’s fucking stacked! Yeah! That’s a WONDER WOMAN!” Really??? *facepalms*   Yeah, I can see her in comic form smacking some sense into these people. LOL 😀

This is the cosplayer known as Riddle’s Messy Wardrobe on FB.
She did a fantastic job her on the uniform. She’s beautiful IMO! 😀

 

However the hilarity really ensued for me, when I was being silly this morning getting ready for my on-call shift at work. I put on my Wonder Woman tiara, why yes I do have a Wondie tiara and bracelets. 😀 And snapped a selfie. I then changed my FB avi to this pic. Why? Because why not? It’s fun and I like having fun. OMG! you should’ve have seen it– the numbers on my messages-in ten minutes from changing my avi, I received 20 messages, two of them were very sweet and supportive. The other oooooh twenty eight now, “You are a disgrace to Wonder Woman. She doesn’t have Blond hair or Brown eyes. Your breasts are too small!” Yeah, those are the snippets narrowed down for you. I’ve left out the really rude and crude ones! You’re welcome!! LOL 😛

One of my friends tagged me:

unnamed2See isn’t he sweet!!! I cropped out his identifying info… I’m sure he wouldn’t have minded, but I prefer to ask for permission first. 😀
so he reblogged this on his blog and added in the comment below- How Awesome is Blue Stevey!!! <3:

I love this girl, though we haven’t met in person. Wonder Woman is about feminism, the strength of the female essence, & equality. A pure expression of yin, if you will. Michelle is 1 of the strongest, toughest, sweetest, & most feminine (ie: beautiful) women I know. She snapped a shot of herself playing dress-up, just a couple of wks after her, dare I say it?, 48th b-day, as though she were still (she is!) a kid, & she caught flack for it. Why? Because she isn’t young, thin, brunette, & matching someone’s (male, I’m sure) idea of beauty. Because she dares to be herself, & doesn’t give a damn about society’s expectations. What did 1 of my female friends think of this pic? ‘Wow! I love your Wonder Woman swag!’ Let’s get more of that goin’, please. . .

Anywho, what does wonder woman mean to me? Compassion, Equality, Education, Temperance, Diversity, Beauty- not necessarily physical beauty either, Strength, Standing up for one’s beliefs!  Yes, I get all that from the many different aspects of Wonder Woman, she’s had her origin retold many different ways/times. However the basic idea is still the same, Equality between the sexes! She doesn’t hate men, neither do I. I just want equal pay, respect, etc. 😀

So let’s finish this entry up with a lovely speech given by Ms. Emma Watson:

I hope ya’ll are having a beautiful day in your part of the world. Once again, YAY! for writing therapy, in the past some of this would have been a thorn in my side. Now I write it out, and TADA it’s no longer an issue for me to dwell on. 😀

XOXO M’Chel
